That is excellent! Did you use several different boxes? Is that is why there is a slight colour variation?
Very beautifully done - although the butterflies are sort of lost among the flowers on the right-hand side of the work. But then again - it could just be my eyes!

Thank you so so much everyone! I feel like I say this really often, but I really do get overjoyed when I see that people like what I do.
Especially graced, when I saw your comment, I almost cried, and I showed my mom. I never considered myself an artist because my drawing's comparable to an elementary schooler, and I only got interested in art last year.

ooh, I'm glad you can tell! There were some boxes (the squares were precut) that were slightly darker, and I tried to use darker colours for the butterflies that weren't 3D so it could show up better, but I wasn't sure if it was obvious enough.

My class reused leftover boxes from like paper towels, or packages from the school, so we couldn't really be picky about the darkness and variety of colour we got  Tongue

I agree that I went just a taaaad overboard on the third square, I precut too many petals and didn't want to waste them.. eek!   Lips sealed


and as for the mistake-- I admit it wasn't really a mistake, I wanted a variation in the way the lines were going, but as I cut the overlapping butterfly I didn't realize until I pieced it together
